This is the fourth Melissa Foster book I have read in a row. I just love the way she creates the most beautiful ideas to weave a wonderful story.

I am so enjoying these books and can't wait to start listening to the next one!
This was an amazing audio book. I'm new to the audible world and this book helped me escape my world and enter the Braden world. The narrators smooth..Show More » voice really brought the inflections of the characters to life. Although I envisioned Cole to have a deeper voice, it was still smooth as butter and swoon worthy. When the characters switched the story truly came to life. It was hard to believe it was the same person reading the story. I just fell in love with Cole and Leesa again and again, it was such a touching and sensitive story the author really gave these characters deep and meaningful backgrounds and story lines. It's one of the reasons I love the series, it's always so unique and leaves me feeling like I secretly am a part of their lives. Leesa encounters a fear that any adult helping a child in need these days faces and Cole the alpha protector he is, lovingly supports her and pushes for the desire to culminate this relationship further. I fall in love with more Braden men than I think I'm allowed to but it's my secret indulgence...thank you Melissa for yet another fabulous romance story.
Melissa Foster and B.J. Harrison are a winning combination for an audiobook. The story was unashamedly romantic, and so beautifully written. B.J. Harr..Show More »ison is a brilliant narrator - he brings each character perfectly to life, with the different tone changes in his voice. I love the way Sam's playboy character totally transforms when he meets the girl of his dreams. His romantic gestures and words, his actions, but most of all, his disarming honesty made for an enthralling, feel-good story, which I really loved listening to. I was fascinated by how Ms Foster wove the symbolism of the river into the story - how the river starts as a tiny trickle, then becomes a stream and finally a river that feeds everything in its path ...kind of like the way Sam and Faith fall in love - hopelessly romantic!! A great read!

Anyone who has followed my blog knows that I LOVE Melissa Foster and her Love in Bloom Series. This is my second favorite book in the series, my first being Treat Braden’s book ~Lovers at Heart. Steve.. Oh Steve. I wanted to climb that mountain and give him some company, even though he was seemed to be happy being a loner. I knew he needed company, I knew his soul mate was out there, and I was thrilled when Shannon Braden showed up on his mountain. She is exactly what he needed to shake up his life.
Shannon Braden is chatty and outgoing, both things Steve Johnson is not. I knew that when I heard Shannon and Steve were going to be together it was going to be fireworks. Melissa Foster did not disappoint. The sparks flew, the heat was obvious, and there was never a doubt that these two were meant to be. Yet, I really enjoyed their honesty and conversations. They put it all on the table, telling what they were each looking for, and what they were willing to give up. These conversations showed just how true and worthy there were of finding each other and their true loves.
This entire series is full of contemporary romances with amazing characters, wonderful happy ever afters, and hot sex! The characters are realistic and lovable. The settings are always amazing with the stunning mountains, exotic islands, beautiful beaches, and gorgeous ranches. But the best parts of Melissa’s stories are the relationship and friendships. They are the things that readers dream of.
If there is any doubt… CHECK THIS BOOK OUT! Actually check this entire series out. This is truly a series that can be read in any order. The characters make appearances in each other’s books but each book has a beginning and an ending. There are no cliffhangers.
